Earliest reports were three days ago, unless you found them somewhere prior than that.

Still waiting for my TRU to restock as there were no deluxe figures left after christmas which i guess leaves them plenty of room for when the new stuff arrives.

Dang, was really hoping that this wave could wait another two or three weeks so I can snag Swindle and start saving for Ultra Magnus, Kickback, or Starscream, whichever I find first.

This has probably been brought up before, but I wonder if the "Robots in Disguise" figures were so small because they new these remolds and bigger weapons were coming?

Thanks El Duque for posting this news and my pics so quickly! :BOWDOWN: I didn't think i would find these figures so soon at this TRU in Peoria. The store was pretty wiped out of new stuff after Christmas and the entire top shelf was empty of boxes for the first time in months. It looked like my store only got 1 case of FOC Wave 3 and Prime BH and I just got lucky. I did post this news a couple of days ago but did not take pictures until today when I purchased another Lazerback. :BOT:

The TRU here said they are doing inventory so they don't see themselves getting any more for 2 months :BANG_HEAD:

Two months? Ouch.

Strange, I don't think inventory takes two months... My mother works as a loss-prevention (security) manager at my local Sears, and their inventory takes a couple days. At least, that's what I scraped up. Don't judge me, I'm an aspiring Marine tanker, not a retail employee. >:oP

Nope. The last Generations sighting news prior to this was Voyager Wave one and Data Discs wave one.

looks like there still having trouble selling dark of the moon toys
they need to get those out of stores by slashing the prices of them
to make room for the new stuff

Walmart has deluxe class figures for $5 and voyagers for $10 for that reason.

Yes my TRU has an obscene amount of DOTM stuff clogging the shelves as you can see in my pics. I have not seen our local Hasbro rep of late...if I see her I will definitely ask her about what will happen with DOTM. The Peoria area Walmarts are overstocked with FOC wave 1 or Prime Wave 1...no DOTM left really. :BOT: But Peoria Target just got a stock off DOTM deluxe special buy two packs for $9.99...Target here sucks too...there is a Super Target coming Spring 2013 and I hope it is better stocked and the area is managed properly. >:oP

I am torn because of Magnus. On the one hand, I think he works better for that mold than Prime does. On the hand, he's so dang small! :-(

Posted by Megatron Wolf on January 2nd, 2013 @ 2:53am CST
so thats where all of the last wave of DOTM figures went to. But anyway i see they're still charging $16 for a deluxe so it looks like i wont be getting any of these. Doesnt matter anyway only ones i care about are Soundwave, Soundblaster & the data discs. Yeah i would like to at least have 1 of the FoC guys but they are to small &/or to expensive. Ill just wait for clearances or sales like ive been doing.

$15.99 is a steal. My TRU is selling them for $18.49. =)

$16 is highway robbery.

I hope the Takara Magnus is lighter blue. Guessing we can bank on that.

YES! Awesome. That does look fantastic. I hate how they retconned Magnus into being dark blue over here.

So I guess I'll call the USA version my Diaclone Magnus or Hero Prime or something. Hmmmm.

I'll have to say, the Takara version is most impressive. However, I think the Takara uses the toy accurate blue, and the Hasbro version uses the G1 cartoon blue, similar to how MP-10/Toys "R" Exclusive Optimus Prime was differentiated.

Diaclone Magnus is the traditional palette swapped; whereas Ultra Magnus is predominately blue with red and white highlights, Diaclone Magnus is predominately red with blue and white highlights.

While Combat Hero Optimus could be a potential suit, keep in mind that both the original canceled figure and the Generations figure that homages said canceled product both lack the sufficient amount of white that helps define Ultra Magnus.

Diaclone Magnus actually appeared in the Japanese G1 cartoon series ? Which one was this ? Did any other Diaclone characters come out ? (red sunstreaker/yellow Sideswipe/red mirage)

Movie Preview Trailer. It was shown to theater owners to pitch the 1986 movie (in development at the time):

Movie preview trailer on YouTube.

Don't pay attention to the music or try and find it, it's straight from Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan (I think)

While I do appreciate the history lesson, you guys gotta relax a little bit... I AM just talking about what I wanna pretend MY extra magnus is called. I'm not trying to define what's a perfect color match or what Hasbro intended... just my extra dude.

Since this Magnus retool doesn't have the white cab, it's tough to say exactly how the colors would swap out "officially." All I'm really going by is how the hues look kinda look like the right blue/red.

That said, I've decided to MY extra dark blue Magnus "Diaclone-Smurfberry-Crunch-Hero-Prime", and you can all kiss my skidplate if you want to argue with it. :grin:

What JelZe said: this was when the animated movie was still under development, and Ultra Magnus's final colors weren't finalized. I kinda dig Diaclone Magnus's palette.

Posted by gothsaurus on January 2nd, 2013 @ 12:53pm CST
All things considered, I think maybe just painting the head red for a Diaclone custom may be the best color match. Hero prime is a bit darker blue, though he does have the nice grill in his chest. Tough choice which one to make a custom of.

Yeah, after tax being $17.31 for these hollow, cheap-plastic, undersized deluxe figures is painful.

That's $86.55 for the wave of five. Might as well get it at BBTS for $84.99 and ship it with stuff in my pile of loot.

Just got my share of Wave Three: looking at Starscream and Ultra Magnus (they were the only ones at my local TRU), I really liked both. However, gotta get Swindle first, then I'll start on Ultra Magnus, since I kinda want to try to get the Masterpiece Seekers first before getting other multiuniversal Seekers.

I WISH my Toys R Us sold them at those prices, Deluxes here are 20 dollars and voyagers are 30..
